Carnivore Pork and Egg Omelette (Vietnamese Inspired)

March 22, 2023

I have been craving the taste of Vietnamese food lately, and was thinking about a pork and egg omelette dish that I had back during my travel days in Vietnam. One thing that always stands to me about Vietnamese cuisine is the use of fish sauce and how it adds a natural umami flavour to every dish they make.

Carnivore Pork and Egg Omelette

This recipe was inspired by a Vietnamese ground pork omelette recipe that I found over at Bun Bo Bae. It is a simple and versatile omelette recipe that can be made for breakfast, lunch, or as a side dish for dinner.

INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS


Carnivore Pork and Egg Omelette ingredients.

⭐️ WHOLE EGGS: Always opt for grass-fed, pasture-raised if it is available to you.

⭐️ GROUND PORK: Any ground meat will do, but the fattiness and neutral flavour of pork makes it a great combination with the egg and fish sauce.

⭐️ FISH SAUCE: This brand Red Star contains pure anchovies and salt, making it 100% carnivore friendly!

⭐️ COCONUT AMINOS: This is optional if you are a strict carnivore. If you are a relaxed carnivore, the addition on the coconut aminos contributes to the Asian flavour as it is a soy-free substitute for soy sauce!

⭐️ WHITE PEPPER: Adds an additional depth of flavour and is a staple in many Asian dishes. White pepper is lower in oxalates than black pepper, if you are oxalate-sensitive.

⭐️ BEEF TALLOW: Any neutral, high smoke point oil will work We always recommend beef tallow for those on an animal-based diet.

WHAT IS FISH SAUCE?


Fish sauce is a condiment made from fish or krill that has been salted and fermented for a period of time. It is a staple ingredient used in many East Asian dishes, particularly in South East Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand). Fish sauce adds a savoury umami flavour to dishes and is universally loved by chefs and food connoisseurs. It can be used as a seasoning during the cooking process or as a base for dipping sauce. Fish sauce is very different to soy sauce in flavour and does not contain any soy

When looking for a fish sauce, our recommendation is to check the ingredient label and ensure that you are using a pure version, with only fish and salt. Due to mass commercialization, many fish sauces now contain added sugars and other ingredients that are not suitable for a low carb diet such as keto or carnivore.


HOW TO MAKE CARNIVORE PORK & EGG OMELETTE

STEP 3: Cook omelette on the stovetop until fully cooked through.


If you want the edges to be extra dark and crispy, use additional beef tallow and cook on high heat for the last few minutes.

WHAT TO SERVE THE PORK & EGG OMELETTE WITH?


This omelette is traditionally served with rice. If you are on the keto diet, I would recommend pairing this with cauliflower rice, Chinese broccoli or bok coy. For carnivore, enjoy this omelette as is, there is plenty of flavour!

FAQ FOR CARNIVORE PORK & EGG OMELETTE


👉 CAN I BLEND THE MIXTURE IN A FOOD PROCESSOR?

Yes you can, but the end texture will be slightly different (more like a pancake or a waffle, as opposed to an omelette).

👉 IS FISH SAUCE CARNIVORE FRIENDLY?

It depends on the brand. For the brand (Red Star) we are using, it is made of only anchovies and salt, making it a carnivore-friendly condiment.

👉 ARE COCONUT AMINOS CARNIVORE FRIENDLY?

Technically not for a strict carnivore diet because coconut aminos are made from coconut tree sap. However, it is soy-free and a great alternative to soy sauce if you are looking for the Asian flavour that soy provides.
